and for many, it's a struggle to keep your a1c down. so imagine, what if there was a new class of medicine that works differently to lower blood sugar? imagine, loving your numbers. introducing once-daily invokana®. it's the first of a new kind of prescription medicine that's used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. invokana® is a once-daily pill that works around the clock to help lower a1c. here's how: the kidneys allow sugar to be absorbed back into the body. invokana® reduces the amount of sugar allowed back in, and sends some sugar out through the process of urination.
and while it's not for weight loss, it may help you lose some weight. invokana® can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause some people to have loss of body water and salt. this may also cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak especially when you stand up. other side effects may include kidney problems, genital yeast infections, urinary tract infections, changes in urination, high potassium in the blood, or increases in cholesterol. do not take invokana® if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis or if allergic to invokana® or its ingredients. symptoms of allergic reaction may include rash, swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing. if you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking invokana® and call your doctor right away or go to the nearest hospital. tell your doctor about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and if you have kidney or liver problems. using invokana® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may
increase risk of low blood sugar. it's time. lower your blood sugar with invokana®. imagine loving your numbers. ask your doctor about invokana®. chopper 6 hd over breaking news just above the schuylkill river on kelly drive, where momented ago a vehicle went into the river, it's believed there is a woman inside of the car, that vehicle is now submerged in the schuylkill river, it was right at noon today when the police and fire department were called out on reports that this vehicle had lost control here on kelly drive, near hunting park

the first time david. >> that is for sure. look at that camera bouncing up and down with the strong winds and combine that with cold temperatures and it does not feel nice out there. 33 is your current temperature, dew point is down to the single dig its, that is an indicator of really crisp dry air. winds are at 22 and gusting over 30, you think you need a coat but you need more than that because of the windchill. 29 in trenton and above the freezing mark in trenton and down the shore. cloud cover is coming from the west and streaking to the south and it's possible to give way to a little bit of cloud cover the rest of the way. it stays fairly bright, the winds are coursing through the region in the 20s and teens and gusting higher than this is going to be a factor in the
afternoon weather and windchills are expected to stay in the low 20s, and back down into the teens at sun down, look for it to be blustery and cold. a high of just 30, windchills stay in the teens in the lehigh valley, at the shore a high better of 30 degrees and windchills in the 20s at best. in philadelphia, a high of 33 degrees, just above the freezing mark but winds are gusting at 35 miles per hour, that is a bitter wind and windchills in the teens most of the time the rest of the way, bitter cold hangs around, and tomorrow temperatures still start out cold, we are challenging some records earlier in the morning, as you get into the afternoon, still about 33 degrees for a high. the good thing for tomorrow is while the winds at dawn and at
3:30 for the morning broadcast, they start to ease back so by 2:30 in the afternoon we are only looking at a 12 miles per hour wind, that means windchills in the 20s tomorrow versus the teens today. 33 is today's high, and 33 tomorrow, a couple of very cold days and cold starts as well. and thursday night is harsh, a high of 47, upper 30s friday and mid-40s and saturday. then be moderate again, turning milder with increasing clouds, 59 on sunday is getting a wow out of sara. and 66 on monday, we'll have to look at rain there and we'll take it given the fact it will be milder. that is some recovery there. thank you david. more ahead on the next half hour of "action news" at noon.
womaand the way it made me chronic feel,ipation, the discomfort, the bloating, the straining. i'd just felt this way for too long. so i finally talked to my doctor about my symptoms. i'd tried laxatives before. he prescribed amitiza (lubiprostone) for my chronic constipation. it works differently than laxatives. man: amitiza is clinically shown to help relieve common symptoms like bloating, abdominal discomfort, hard stools, and straining and help people with chronic constipation go more often. don't take amitiza, if you have a bowel blockage
or severe diarrhea. tell your doctor, if your nausea or diarrhea, becomes severe, or if you experience chest tightness or shortness of breath. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. woman: amitiza helped me find relief from my chronic constipation. ask your doctor if amitiza is right for you.
